Disney is an American sensation loved around the world. From movies to TV shows to theme parks, the iconic company has successfully conquered the international market. Well, for the most part. In November 2022, the company launched Disney Plus. A content-rich streaming service coveted by fans around the world, Disney Plus surely didn't disappoint.



However, after nearly two years, the streaming service is still not available in all countries. You can view a full list of countries on the Disney Plus website. If you're visiting another country, you might want to take Disney Plus with you. Luckily, we'll show you how to watch Disney Plus in other countries.

What do you need

Before we dive into the instructions, let's first talk about what you'll need.

Limited offer: 3 months FREE!

First, and most obviously, you'll need a Disney Plus subscription. You can get it by visiting the streaming service website, creating an ID and adding a payment method.

Signing up for Disney Plus is pretty straightforward. But then you will need a VPN. The introduction of VPN gets a bit more complicated as many users don't know what they are, how to get one or how to use one. But don't worry, we'll explain everything to you in this article.

You can use any VPN, but we prefer ExpressVPN because it's fast, reliable, secure, and incredibly user-friendly. You can purchase a subscription on this website (and remember that even though it's a paid service, it comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee).



Limited offer: 3 months FREE!

During setup, you can follow these steps to connect your VPN to your device:

  1. Go to the ExpressVPN website and click Installer.
  2. Sign into your account. Next, select the device you want to use to watch Disney+. Here, you'll find instructions for your specific device and the activation codes you'll need to get ahead.
  3. If you are using an Android or iOS device, simply download the app from the Google Play Store or Apple's App Store.

Once you've completed the steps to sign up for both services, it's time to start streaming Disney Plus overseas.

How to watch Disney Plus on a Roku device

If you want to watch Disney Plus on a bigger screen, you can always use a Roku device. Unfortunately, Roku does not natively support a VPN, so you will need to use a workaround to enable a VPN on your device. To protect your privacy and hide your real location on a Roku device, you will need to connect a router to your VPN or create a virtual router using a PC or Mac. Fortunately, ExpressVPN gives you this option.

If you don't already know how, you can find instructions for setting up ExpressVPN on your router using this link.

  2. Select Network.
  3. Aller vers Connection settings and click on it.

  6. Enter your router password and select Connect.
  7. Make sure you are connected to a server in the United States and have set up a US Roku account.
  8. Once your connection is established, launch the Disney Plus app and start streaming content.

If you don't have access to router settings, you can set up a virtual VPN network on your computer. Keep in mind that not all routers and VPNs offer this option.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are the answers to many of your questions.

Why do I need a VPN to stream Disney Plus abroad?

The answer to this question is relatively simple. Disney uses geo-blocking to deny access to its service from any device located in countries other than those we have mentioned. When you access their website, it tracks your IP address and realizes that you are not from these countries.

Then access is denied, which is a real shame. You might know this if you've ever tried to connect to Hulu from outside the US, but Disney hasn't set up global servers yet.

Enjoy Disney Plus

This is how you watch Disney Plus from any country in the world, on Android and iOS devices. Remember to choose a reliable VPN, and that's it. You can stream as much premium Disney content as you want.
